The Superheavy Nuclide and Nuclear Structure Group at the Institute of Modern Physics (IMP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) invites applications from outstanding candidates for a postdoctoral fellowship position in experimental nuclear physics. The selected candidate will work in the Gamma Spectroscopy team to operate and upgrade an experimental platform for nuclear structure and reaction studies, as well as to analyze the data, mainly on nuclear reaction mechanisms. The host group is also actively involved in other world's leading projects such as KISS@KEK, HISPEC/DESPEC@GSI/FAIR, and CAITEN@RIKEN, providing an excellent scientific environment to develop a career in experimental nuclear physics.
More information about the laboratory can be found on the website: http://shnns.impcas.ac.cn/en
The appointment is initially for one year with the possibility of an extension for up to two additional years. Candidates are expected to have obtained a Ph.D. degree in experimental nuclear physics within the last five years. Preference will be given to candidates with postdoctoral experience.
Once enrolled, and if skills are justified, the host group would also help/support additional applications for other talents programs, such as the CAS President's International Fellowship Initiative (PIFI), Exchange Fellowship funded by Office of China Postdoc Council (OCPC), as well as grants from the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), etc.
Applicants must have experience/interest in handling HPGe detectors, Scintilator detectors such as LaBr3, and in performing gamma-ray spectroscopy experiments. Good knowledge of programming skill (e.g., C++, Python), ROOT, and other dedicated software for gamma-ray spectroscopy data analysis is also required. Excellent communication and superior writing skills are strongly preferred.
Interested candidates are encouraged to send a CV and cover letter briefly describing their laboratory experience/skills and scientific achievements to Dr. LI (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Review of the applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
